On a personal note...

Miscellaneous Monday

miscell-monday

Reading…a bit of everything. I’m all over the place again and trying to settle in on something. I started All The Ugly and Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood. At first I couldn’t put it down and then the craziness of Thanksgiving started. I’m also finishing up The Book of Joy, which has been soothing to my soul. While driving all over the place for the holiday, I started the audio of The Wonder by Emma Donoghue. So far so good.

Thinking…I’m not going to meet my goal of three books for Nonfiction November. With only three days left of the month, the sad reality set in this morning. I also forgot to vote on the Goodreads “Best of 2016”. Ooops!

Watching...the new season of The Affair. I wasn’t sure how they would keep the story going after a big ending last season. And of course, The Gilmore Girls revival. And I still absolutely love This Is Us.

Wanting…more bookshelf space. I’ve run out. And I’m trying to cull books, really. I did remove 10 and will donate them but it didn’t help that I went to Half Price Books for some holiday shopping. I did get many gifts but also a few for myself.

Playing…lots of word games, card games and board games with the fam. It started over my mini-break and I’m not giving them up. I forgot how much I love Scrabble and other wordy games that are easily accessible via apps when I don’t have any humans to play with in person.

Three little words…three more weeks!!

  1. Were you able to finish All the Ugly? Not easy reading, but I thought it was pretty incredible.

    I’m right there with you on non-fiction Nov. I read exactly ONE NF book. I don’t need reality these days- I need full-on escape.

    Don’t feel bad about the GR books. I voted and not one of the books I voted for won. I hadn’t even read any of the winners. I’m thinking maybe I’m an outlier in GR world.

    I hope things quiet down enough that you can enjoy the holiday. I’m thinking of you!

    • I just looked at the GR winners. Hmmm…a very interesting winners list. I guess I’m an outlier in GR world also. I just like it being a place I can keep track of my books and see what others are saying in short snippets.

      Three more days until break for me! I’m reading feverishly right now and loving every second! I’m thinking of you as well! xo
